                                   Executive Summary
The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC) White Paper 2003 – Crime and the Criminal Justice
System in Arizona attempts to present a comprehensive statewide report on the occurrence of crime
in Arizona, as well as the associated workload of the criminal justice system. One of the most
comprehensive resources since the publication of the 1995 White Paper was the 2002 Crime Trends
in Arizona report. The 2003 White Paper builds upon the Crime Trends report and gives the reader
the comprehensive comparison to the changes that have taken place in the criminal justice system
since the 1995 White Paper.

According to the Arizona Crime Trends: A System Review, Arizona has gone from third to first in total
crime ranking and at the same time, has actually decreased in the total crime rate per capita.
Robbery and Auto Theft are the only Part I crimes that have increased. Arizona has the dubious
distinction of leading the country in auto theft. Violent Offenses have increased by a small
percentage, with reported rape offenses increasing 14.8 percent, while the crime of murder showed a
large decrease (11.2 percent). During the same time period, Property Offenses showed a very small
increase (1.1 percent).

It is the intent of this study to provide information in a factual and objective manner allowing easy
access and individual interpretation. The research examined workloads and budgets at the state,
county, and municipal levels of government in Arizona. The criminal justice system in the state of
Arizona includes, but is not limited too, all law enforcement agencies, the courts, probation
departments, and prisons and jails. The workload for these elements is detailed in the body of this
report and it shows that it increased significantly from 1995 to 2002. Workload is measured in
various ways by various elements. This report uses the descriptors used by the agencies such as
number of arrests, number on probation, and incarceration numbers.

The state of Arizona is second only to Nevada in population growth. The 1995 White Paper projected
continued statewide growth, but the population growth of 29.4 percent from 1995-2002 exceeded all
expectations. Projections are for Arizona’s population to continue to increase at an above average
rate taking it from the 23rd most populous state in 2002 to the 15th most populous state by 2025.
Given the correlation between population growth and crime, the 1.1 percent increase in reported Part
I crime between 1995 and 2002 is relatively low when compared to the state’s dramatic population
increase.

For the most part, the arrest and reported crime data provided has been captured through the
Uniform Crime Reports (UCR). Questions could arise regarding the accuracy of this data because of
the fact that not 100 percent of all law enforcement agencies in Arizona regularly contribute this
information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The reliability of this data can be improved with
the implementation of better reporting systems and the dedication of personnel and resources to
complete these tasks in a timely manner. Agencies working with the different populations will want a
more definitive breakdown to examine possible trends.

Data regarding juvenile arrests was also provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
Within the area of juvenile arrests, two disturbing trends have been noted. The first is the increased
number of juveniles being referred to the juvenile justice system for drug offenses. This trend is
consistent with findings from the 2002 Arizona Youth survey indicating increased substance abuse in
Arizona. The second disturbing trend is that the percentage of females entering the juvenile justice
                                                  i
system in proportion to males is increasing in all but a few Arizona counties. These two trends
identify target populations that will need specialized programming for both the juvenile and criminal
justice community, and should be closely monitored during the coming years.

Data concerning arrests for Part I, Part II Drug Offenses, and juvenile referrals illustrate some of the
problems currently facing Arizona. Adult arrests for Part I crimes decreased by 14.1 percent over the
reporting period, while arrests for Part II Drug Offense crimes increased by 14.2 percent. Further,
total juvenile arrests have declined over the reporting period for all segments of reported crimes. This
is indicated by the decline of 29.8 percent in arrests for violent crime and a 26.3 percent decrease in
juvenile arrests for Property Offense. Juvenile referrals for drug related activity increased by 2.7
percent during the study period. The reader may notice there is a discrepancy between UCR Part II
Drug data and data reported from the individual counties as reported to the Administrative Office of
the Courts. The reason for that difference was not determined.

The number of adults and juveniles on probation for the state has increased since 1995. In 1996,
there were 7,084 juveniles on probation and in 2002 there were 9,568, a 35.1 percent increase. The
number of adult probationers increased from 37,276 in 1996 to 49,229 in 2002, an increase of 32.1
percent. One major change in the juvenile system since the 1995 White Paper was a reduction of
31.6 percent in Status Offense referrals. There were only two counties (Santa Cruz and Yuma) that
experienced an increase in the number of status offense referrals in their respective county.

Correctional activity has increased dramatically during the reporting period. In general, commitments
for Part I offenses have increased substantially, for all categories including violent crime (41.5
percent), property crime (16.5 percent), and drug-related offenses (21.6 percent). The percentage of
female inmates increased 69.5 percent from 1995 to 2002. In addition, the percentage of female
inmates increased from 6.6 percent of the overall inmate population to 8.1 percent in FY2002. During
the same reporting period, commitments for those ages 16 to 24 increased 35.6 percent. These
illustrate that more young people are being sentenced for felonies, and at the same time, females
constitute a greater percentage of those commitments. The inmate population age 50 and up made
up 6.9 percent of the total population in FY1995 but in FY2002 made up 9.1 percent of the total
population. From 1995 to 2002 this segment of the inmate population increased 81.7 percent. Finally,
during the same reporting period, budgetary growth for state corrections increased substantially, and
the inmate population increased 39.5 percent as well.

The ACJC Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) requested and received a great deal of information from
the counties regarding their budgetary information for the period from 1995 through 2002. Much of
this information referenced the county General Fund data in addition to specific criminal justice
information. The SAC did include Jail Excise Tax information in order to make the process more
comparable with the rest of the county information. Significant efforts were made by both ACJC and
the county agencies to maintain data consistency. However, despite these efforts, the data reporting
procedures, timelines and nomenclature sometimes varied from county to county. Because of the
possible differences in reporting and timelines, caution must be used in drawing comparisons
between counties based on the reported budget information.

During the eight-year period, overall General Fund budgets increased at both state and county levels
of government. The total State General Fund appropriation budget was $4,461,589,100 in 1995 and
$7,034,601,100 in 2002, a 57.7 percent increase. The state criminal justice proportion of the State
General Fund increased from 12.0 percent in 1995 to 12.9 percent in 2002. From 1995 through 2002

                                                   ii
County General Funds increased by 42.4 percent and in all counties there were increases in criminal
justice budgets. In comparison, the total criminal justice share of the county General Funds increased
from 40.2 percent in 1995 to 43.6 percent in 2002. Of the 15 counties there were two counties,
Maricopa and Mohave, in which the criminal justice share of the State General Fund showed a slight
decrease.

The 2003 White Paper is a compilation of data collected and provided to the SAC by a number of
agencies at both the state and local levels. All agencies that contributed information for the report
were extremely courteous and helpful to the extent that they had data available. This is a key
element regarding the White Paper as it was very apparent that data elements were missing from a
number of agencies. Most of this is due to the shortages of personnel and other resources necessary
to capture this type of data on a regular basis. Some of the missing data elements are the result of
problems detected in data management systems as a result of the survey for this report. Although
the data is not available from those agencies, the result has been a catalyst for these agencies to
correct previously unseen problems, allowing for improved data collection for future studies.

It is clear that more needs to be done regarding data collection and the subsequent sharing and
analysis of that information. This information must be available to the Criminal Justice Commission
and other agencies in order to help all criminal justice entities and the public understand the total
picture of crime in Arizona and the problems that are faced by each component of the criminal justice
system.

The ACJC SAC has a mission to ensure collaboration and sharing of information. To this end, the SAC
and the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission are committed to the continuing improvement of all
information components of the criminal justice system throughout the state. Constant and consistent
improvements to the data gathering capabilities for law enforcement, prosecutorial, judicial, and
correctional components of the criminal justice system will help to ensure the completeness of the
data elements and the subsequent analysis and dissemination of this comprehensive, systematic
information. The reports generated from these studies are vital for policy makers of each
fundamental unit of the criminal justice system, and it is this type of information and the forthcoming
analysis by which policy makers undertake the most difficult of decisions.

Arizona’s criminal justice system will face several challenges in the coming years. It is quite evident,
that the continued population increase over the next few years will also place a greater workload on
all agencies within criminal justice system. Budget issues will continue to have a bearing on the
availability of all services throughout the state. As is evidenced by the dramatic growth of Arizona’s
population and the resulting requirements for expansion of services in criminal justice, funding for the
criminal justice system will continue to be one of the most pressing of issues during the 21st Century.
Related to the issue of adequate funding, Arizona will have to explore new avenues for implementing
more effective and efficient methods of addressing crime while facing rising workloads and increased
expectations for service delivery.

                                       INTRODUCTION

Previous publications by the Statistical Analysis Center (SAC), have noted that Arizona faces
numerous challenges in the coming years in maintaining established levels of services, while
addressing the critical needs of the criminal justice system and balancing those against public safety.
The difficulties facing state and local budgets are not unique to Arizona. Arizona has experienced
enormous population growth over the past 10 years placing a burden on all levels of government to
fund operations to meet demands. Moreover, the effort to maintain current levels of public safety is
further strained by the trend of a growing population at a time when increased security is sought.

In January 2003, the Arizona Crime Trends publication was presented to the Governor, the criminal
justice community and the public with a compilation of crime related data from national sources and
criminal justice agencies throughout Arizona. The Arizona Crime Trends gathered data and emerging
trends from various components of the criminal justice system in an effort to develop a system
perspective. Our current publication, the 2003 White Paper: Crime and the Criminal Justice System in
Arizona will serve as an extension of this previous study by drilling down to the agency level and
providing specific information relative to workloads and budgets. The Arizona Crime Trends report
emphasized crime rates throughout the publication. In contrast, the 2003 White Paper will present
base data as reported by the participating agencies in the study. (ACJC: 2003)

The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission completed a “White Paper” in 1995 that assessed the
current condition of the criminal justice system in Arizona. The 1995 version of the “White Paper”
grew out of concerns by Commission members that the system was fragmented and had a number of
problems, which adversely affected the manner in which justice was delivered to the citizens of
Arizona. The intent of the 1995 “White Paper” was to act as a catalyst and primary information
source for a symposium sponsored by the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission for elected and
appointed public policy makers who control priorities and resource allocations.

Some of the concerns expressed in 1995 that precipitated the publication of the “White Paper”
remain driving forces behind the publication of this 2003 “White Paper”. Those driving forces
include, but are not limited to: population increase; crime, competition for limited resources;
disparate and in some cases, detached computer systems, jurisdictions dealing with the same
perpetrators independently of each other; and an unclear understanding of what the criminal justice
system is and should be. This publication provides data to assist the reader in making informed
judgments about the current condition of the criminal justice system in Arizona. Budget crises at the
federal, state, and local government levels are requiring a reassessment of each component of the
system and the priority of that component when competing for scarce financial and human resources.
This paper examines crime and arrest statistics; data relating to workloads; and demographic
information such as population changes, at-risk populations, and other similar data. The report
includes selected data from law enforcement, prosecution, the courts, corrections, and probation at
state, county, and municipal levels. This document also includes available information regarding the
funding levels for the various components of the criminal justice system at the state and local levels.
The information provided relates to both the amount of funding and the percentage of total
governmental expenditures represented by those amounts. To the extent possible, the data also
includes the number of personnel available to any particular function of the system.

The “White Paper” is a collection of data and information. It does not attempt to explain the reasons
for changes that have occurred. The Statistical Analysis Center sought to represent the findings in a
                                                   1
factual and objective manner noting general observations regarding the collected data. By utilizing
detailed information presented herein, criminal justice stakeholders and analysts may conduct
comparative analysis as appropriate and as needed for their area of reference. This paper is intended
to serve strictly as a resource for policy makers to use as a guide in making decisions about the
future of the Arizona Criminal Justice System.

This White Paper is also intended to provide a comprehensive view of the many factors that surround
and affect the criminal justice system in this state. These factors include, but are not limited to,
increases in population, budgets, criminal offense reporting, prosecution, court cases, incarceration
rates, probation, and parole. These items are presented in order to help provide a clearer picture of
the criminal justice system as it serves the people of Arizona.

RESEARCH PURPOSE
The purpose of this 2003 White Paper: Crime and the Criminal Justice System in Arizona is to help in
answering questions regarding the past performance of the criminal justice system, the direction it is
presently taking, and some possible expectations for the future. The 2003 White Paper: Crime and
the Criminal Justice System in Arizona publication was created to accomplish two primary objectives.
The first objective was to serve as an extension of the Arizona Crime Trends publication by providing
data at the agency level. The second objective is to provide the Governor, Legislators, Commission
members, criminal justice stakeholders and the citizens of Arizona with a practical and factual report
of the current state of agencies within the criminal justice system. It may also be utilized by other
interested stakeholders, such as community leaders or individuals in policy-making positions.


RESEARCH METHODS
The Statistical Analysis Center of the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission studied the 1995 version of
the “White Paper”, and as a result of this analysis, concluded that a replication of the data sources
served as a good starting point for the compilation of the needed data for the 2003 report. In order
to obtain this information, several detailed questionnaires were developed and sent to law
enforcement, prosecution and county budget departments throughout the state. The questionnaires
requested information on the size of the population that was served by the agency, geographic size
of service areas, levels of reported crime, caseloads, and other related workload measures. The
questionnaires also requested information on organizational resources such as budgets and the
number of agency personnel.

In addition to data received from the individual agencies via questionnaires, data collected for this
edition of the “White Paper” was obtained predominantly from four sources. The Statistical Analysis
Center was able to obtain data from these sources electronically which proved to be a distinct
advantage over the process used in the data collection for the 1995 White Paper publication. The first
of the four electronic sources is reported crime (index) and arrest data. This information comes from
the monthly information sent to the Arizona Department of Public Safety in the form of Uniform
Crime Reports (UCR). For this purpose, and for other ongoing projects, the Arizona Statistical
Analysis Center received an electronic file containing UCR data stored in the Arizona Department of
Public Safety database.



                                                  2
The second major source of data was provided by several divisions of the Administrative Office of the
Courts. These electronic data files included detailed court workload and budget data for superior,
justice and municipal courts throughout the state. In addition, adult probation and juvenile probation
and referral (arrest) data were received in electronic format from the Administrative Office of the
Courts.

The third major source of data was provided by the Department of Corrections. They provided inmate
population counts for 1995 through 2002. This data is critical since the Department of Corrections is
one of the largest criminal justice agencies in the state. The data files were sent electronically and
clearly demonstrate the large workload increase since the original White Paper in 1995.

Population data was the final major source for the 2003 White Paper. Population data was obtained
from two sources. The primary source of state census information was the Arizona Department of
Economic Security (ADES). Population counts and estimates were provided by ADES for 1995 through
2002. Also, some population estimates by gender were obtained from ADES. The Federal Bureau of
the Census American Fact Finder website was used in the section on national population distribution
and trends.

Once data was received the final stage of the project entailed a verification of the accuracy of the
data to be included in the 2003 White Paper. The Statistical Analysis Center staff compared all data
included in the 2003 White Paper publication with original survey submissions from individual
agencies. In addition, the data was analyzed and assessed for problems and consistency. Logical
errors were reported to the submitting agency for review. As part of this process, each agency was
sent a copy of the data to be included in the publication and requested to review that data for
accuracy and completeness.

ORGANIZATION OF THIS REPORT
As noted previously, it is the intent of this study to provide information in a factual and objective
manner allowing easy access and individual interpretation. Text and graphics are used primarily to
highlight relevant information in tables and to provide general observations regarding changes over
time. The design of the 2003 White Paper was developed with the intent of allowing for ease of
access, duplication, and distribution. For this purpose, the White Paper is available on the Arizona
Criminal Justice website and was produced in black and white in order to reduce costs and allow
more clarity when duplicated.

The 2003 White Paper begins with a short discussion regarding the availability and limitations of data
sources related to crime in Arizona. This includes a brief summary of the current status of the
Uniform Crime Reports coordinated through the Arizona Department of Public Safety and efforts to
move toward a more detailed crime reporting process through the National Incident Based Reporting
System (NIBRS). In addition, a summary section relating to the data collection of budgetary
information was included in order to provide the reader a clear understanding of issues relative to
criminal justice budget data.

The paper is subdivided into three sections based on the level of government. The first section
provides information regarding state criminal justice agencies. The second section deals with the 15
Arizona counties in alphabetical order. The third section details 26 municipalities with populations
greater than 15,000 in 2002.
                                                  3
The 2003 White Paper also includes information concerning Excise Taxes supporting jails as
authorized by A.R.S § 48-4021 in 1989. Coconino, La Paz, Maricopa, Yavapai, and Yuma counties
each created jail districts in order to utilize excise taxes to fund jails.

CRIME DATA SOURCES
Uniform Crime Report (UCR)

The primary means by which crime data is collected and made available within Arizona is through the
Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data. The Arizona Department of Public Safety has been authorized by
the state of Arizona to act as the Central Repository for all criminal history records, including Uniform
Crime Reports, for the state. In 1992, A.R.S. §41-1750 D was amended to read, “The chief officers of
law enforcement agencies of this state or its political subdivisions shall provide to the central state
repository such information as necessary to operate the statewide uniform crime reporting program
and to cooperate with the federal government uniform crime reporting program.”

Since that time the number of law enforcement agencies participating in the UCR data project Crime
in Arizona has increased remarkably. In 1995, 94 of the possible 102 law enforcement agencies
voluntarily contributed (UCR) data to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Of the 94 agencies
that contributed data, not all of these agencies provided information for all 12 months. For example,
in 1995 there were 91 of a possible 102 agencies that contributed UCR data to the Arizona
Department of Public Safety with eight agencies sending in no data and three agencies contributing
partial data. In all, there were 124 months of data that were not submitted in time to be included in
the 1995 DPS publication Crime in Arizona. In comparison, the 2002 Crime in Arizona reflected the
data of 97 law enforcement agencies (of a possible 103) with only 74 months not included for
reporting purposes. This increase has resulted in the availability of more complete and accurate data
available for analysis. Generally, there is a consistent pattern with certain agencies not submitting,
or submitting partial UCR data.

Crime data is collected by DPS from law enforcement agencies across the state, placed in aggregate
form, and forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the yearly UCR Report.
This data gives law enforcement agencies, other public bodies, and criminal justice executives a
composite picture of criminal activity, arrests, and other important information for Arizona on a yearly
basis. In this manner, comparisons may be made regarding crime trends and the impact of criminal
activity on the state.

Additionally, it is important to note differences in reporting methodologies between the 2001 Crime in
Arizona publication and the 2001 Crime in the United States publication of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation. This primarily pertains to estimates made at the national level by extrapolating data
from agencies that contribute incomplete or partial data. Additionally, there are differences in
population estimates used by the FBI and the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Therefore, the
reader should be cognizant that there will be subtle differences between the numbers contained
within these two reports. As noted previously, UCR data provided in this publication was obtained
from an electronic submission from the Arizona Department of Public Safety database. Therefore, any
updates that occurred following the publication in the Crime in Arizona report will result in differences
in these reported numbers.

                                                   4
Although the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) data is the primary means by which data is reported in
Arizona, it is not without limitations. First, as noted above, not all jurisdictions submit complete data.
Second, only the most serious offense is counted as part of a report or an arrest. Finally, relatively
few data elements are included in the report, and thus, greatly reduce the ability of more detailed
analysis.

National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

The National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) is a joint project of the US Bureau of Justice
Statistics and the Federal Bureau of Investigation that will enhance the current UCR program by
providing more detailed information than was previously collected by UCR. Over the past five years,
NIBRS reporting has more than doubled with the number of state certified programs increasing to 18.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is working toward implementing a statewide Incident Based
Reporting System (IBRS) repository. IBRS is designed to collect data on each single crime occurrence
and on each incident and arrest within that occurrence. One of the significant differences between
IBRS and the traditional UCR summary system is the degree of detail in reporting. The UCR summary
system collects information on only eight Part I crimes (murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated
assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson).

IBRS collects information on 22 crime categories made up of 46 specific crime offenses in Group A:
   •  arson                                             • gambling
   •  assault                                           • homicide
   •  bribery                                           • kidnapping/abduction
   •  burglary/breaking and entering                    • larceny/theft
   •  counterfeiting/forgery                            • pornography/obscene material
   •  destruction damage/vandalism of                   • prostitution
      property                                          • robbery
   • drug narcotics                                     • forcible/non-forcible sex offenses
   • embezzlement                                       • stolen property
   • extortion/blackmail                                • weapon law violations
   • fraud
In Group B, 11 offenses are collected:
   • bad checks                                         • liquor law violations
   • curfew loitering/vagrancy violations,              • peeping tom, runaway
   • disorderly conduct                                 • trespass of real property
   • driving under the influence                        • all other offenses
   • drunkenness, nonviolent family offenses
For Group B offenses, only arrest data are reported. IBRS information will be forwarded to the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and added to the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS)
database.

At present, two Arizona law enforcement agencies in addition to DPS are pursuing the initiation of
IBRS with grant funding from ACJC. The Phoenix Police Department and the Yavapai County Sheriff’s
Office have initiated IBRS and have since started testing procedures prior to final implementation.
There are other agencies such as the Benson Police Department that have purchased records
management systems that have the capability to report crimes in IBRS. Through IBRS, sheriffs, police
chiefs, agency directors, commissioners, legislators, municipal planners/administrators, academicians,


                                                    5
penologists, sociologist, and the general public will have access to more detailed crime information
than the current UCR Summary System can provide.

                                           National Justice Expenditures

In February of 2002 the Bureau of Justice Statistics published a Bulletin titled Justice Expenditure and
Employment in the United States, 1999. This Bulletin was based on a compilation of data from the
Census Bureau annual surveys of governmental finances and employment. Among its findings was
that in 1999 state governments spent $57 billion on criminal and civil justice. Of that spending, 60
percent went to corrections. Additionally, it found that state justice expenditure grew approximately
nine percent each year between 1982 and 1999.

In 1999 the Federal government alone spent $27 billion dollars on the justice system. This was a 514
percent increase between 1982 and 1999 and represented faster growth than that for state (393
percent) and local governments (257 percent). The Federal government share of justice system
expenditures was 12 percent in 1982 compared with 19 percent in 1999.

the most (51 percent) to the criminal and civil justice system — almost $75 billion. By far the largest
component of local expenditure was police protection, at nearly $46 billion.

increase on police protection was
only about 7 percent. The Federal government expenditure for police protection increased by about
10 percent annually.

Across the nation, state and local governments spent $442.14 per capita on justice activities. This
ranged from $227.96 per capita in West Virginia to $1,212.27 in the District of Columbia. In 1999,
                                                7
Arizona ranked 10th in the nation for per capita justice expenditures. However, Arizona was fourth in
employment as a percentage of all government employment and had the third highest per capita
justice employment figure in the nation.

Justice Employment

The total number of justice employees grew 72 percent between 1982 and 1999, with the largest
growth attributed to state governments (107 percent). Altogether, federal, state, and local
governments had 2.2 million justice related employees in 1999. In October 2002, the Bureau of
Justice Statistics published a Bulletin called Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies,
2000. This document demonstrates that as of June 2000, state and local governments in the United
States operated 17,784 full-time law enforcement agencies. At that time, Arizona had 135 state and
local law enforcement agencies with 20,595, full time employees of which 11,533 were sworn
personnel. Additionally, Arizona stands out with two police departments, Phoenix and Tucson, in the
top 50 largest police departments by number of full time, sworn personnel. Phoenix Police
Department alone had 2,626 sworn officers and Tucson Police Department had 928.

A Note on the Impact of Homeland Security

On April 11, 2002 the White House issued a press release which began, “Immediately following the
tragic events of September 11, departments and agencies from across the federal government took
steps to strengthen the safety and security of the American people. At the Federal level, a total of
$10.6 billion from the Fiscal Year 2002 Emergency Budget Supplemental was dedicated to homeland
security.” The press release outlined dozens of law enforcement activities and security measures of
all types which have been implemented by the establishment of the Department of Homeland
Security, and the passage of the USA Patriot Act, in addition to many other initiatives and programs.
The Office of Management and Budget lists the 2003 enacted, non-defense Homeland Security
funding as $28.9 billion with an additional, supplemental $5.3 billion. The budget for 2004 is
expected to reach $34.6 billion.

With this many federal programs and this level of funding, we can reasonably expect the local and
state criminal justice workloads to increase proportionately. And while federal funding is available, it
is reasonable to expect some of the burden of increased national security to fall to the state and local
governments. Anecdotal evidence indicates that the impact of newly implemented national security
procedures has already increased the presence of law enforcement at Arizona’s international border
and at Sky Harbor International Airport.

This portion of the 2003 White Paper will present data regarding population, the levels of reported
crime, and number of arrests statewide. In addition, this chapter will provide information on the
activities of state criminal justice agencies and the level of resources provided to them. Finally, this
chapter will provide total statewide statistics on court activities at the Superior, Justice and Municipal
court levels.

STATEWIDE POPULATION DATA

Table 1-1 below shows Arizona’s population has increased every year from 1995 to 2002. The state’s
2002 population of 5,472,750 ranks it as the 23rd most populous state in the United States,
according to State Rankings. During the period 1995 to 2002, Arizona’s population increased 29.4
percent. It is projected to be the 15th most populated state with an estimated population of 6.4
million residents by 2025.

Individuals between the ages of 16 and 24 are considered by many in law enforcement to be the
most at-risk age group. The exact ages of those considered at risk vary slightly depending on the
study. On a national level, Dr. James Fox in Trends in Juvenile Violence in 1996 wrote that, “Males,
ages 14-24 are less than eight percent of the population yet commit 48 percent of the murders.” He
also noted that, “From 1989 to 1994, the arrest rate for Violent Offenses (murder, rape, robbery and
aggravated assault) rose over 46 percent among teenagers, but only about 12 percent among
adults.” (Fox, 1996) In Arizona, youth ages 16 to 24 comprised 12.9 percent of the population in
2000, according to the U.S. Census. In 2000, 37.5 percent of those arrested for Part I Violent
                                                                 11
Offenses committed in Arizona were between the ages of 16 and 24. During the same year 39.4
percent of all murders were committed by males ages 16 to 24.

While the population of the state has increased during the last eight years (a 29.4 percent increase),
total Part I offenses increased 1.4 percent over the same eight-year period. Table 1-3 shows that
total Part I Violent Offenses increased 1.5 percent from 1995 through 2002. In the Violent Offense
category the largest percentage increase was in rape, which showed an increase of 15.2 percent. The
largest decline was in murder, which went down by 15.8 percent. Robbery increased 10.8 percent,
while aggravated assaults decreased 2.6 percent.

Part I total Property Offenses increased 1.3 percent over an eight-year period with vehicle thefts
increasing the most at 18.5 percent. Larceny-theft decreased 2.4 percent and the number of
burglaries declined 0.4 percent, while the number of arsons reported increased 15.2 percent from
1995 through 2002.

Figures 1-1 and 1-2 display the number of Part I Violent and Property Offenses from 1995 through
2002. Both categories experienced similar increases and decreases, although the changes are more
dramatic in the Violent Offenses reported. Both categories had very small increases overall during
this time (1.5 percent for Violent Offenses and 1.3 percent for Property Offenses). While the overall
                                                                              13
increase was relatively low over the entire eight-year period, Violent Offenses reported increased
14.9 percent from a low of 25,943 in 1999 to a high of 29,805 in 2002. Property Offenses reported
displayed a similar trend reaching a low point in 1999 with 254,052 reported and a high point of
314,684 in 2002, an increase of 23.9 percent over the past four years.

Table 1-4 shows the total number of adult arrests for Part I crimes as reported by agencies for the
UCR. The total number of adult arrests for Part I crimes decreased 14.1 percent during the eight-year
period, while arrests for Part I Violent Offenses had a slight 1.0 percent increase. The number of
adults arrested for aggravated assaults decreased 0.2 percent and arrests for robbery increased 13.6
percent, while forcible rape arrests were down 21.8 percent and murder/non-negligent manslaughter
was down 3.8 percent.

Table 1-4 also provides data regarding adult Part I Property Offenses. Total Property Offense arrests
were down 17.4 percent from 1995 through 2002. Arrests for vehicle thefts increased 92.2 percent,
while all of the other Property Offense categories showed declines. Burglary was down 6.5 percent,
larceny-theft was down 26.3 percent and arson was down 34.6 percent.

Part II drug offense arrests increased 27.0 percent for adults in the state. Arrests for sale or
manufacturing of drugs by adults declined 4.4 percent, while adult arrests for possession increased
37.2 percent. The total number of adult arrests for all Part II offenses statewide increased 14.2
percent over the eight-year period from 1995 through 2002.

Table 1-17 is based on data obtained from the Board of Executive Clemency and provides workload
data for Parole; Modification, Rescission and Revocation; and Clemency. From FY1995 to FY2002
parole hearings scheduled decreased 86.8 percent and hearings held dropped 86.7 percent. Of the
total number of parole hearings held, the granting of release (compared to denials) decreased from
46.0 percent in 1995 to 33.2 percent in 2002.

Modification hearings decreased 83.3 percent, rescission hearings decreased 93.1 percent and
revocation hearings increased 172.2 percent between FY1995 and FY2002. Of 165 modification
hearings between FY1995 and FY2002, 155 (93.9 percent) resulted in modifications. During the same
period 557 (88.3 percent) of the 631 total rescission hearings resulted in the parole status being
rescinded. There were 12,924 revocation hearings between FY1995 and FY2002. Of these, 11,834
(91.6 percent) were revoked.

Most of the 2,160 clemency hearings (86.0 percent) resulted in a no recommendation to the
Governor. From 1995 to 2002, a total of 32 pardon recommendations, one reprieve recommendation,
and 224 commutation recommendations were sent to the governor.

The Arizona Board of Clemency saw an overall decrease in hearings in each subsequent year from
1995 through 2002. In FY1995, there were 12,112 hearings held dropping to 4,304 in 2002, a

Table 1-19 also illustrates that from 1995 through 2002 the percentage of the total inmate population
represented by inmates in the 17 years and under age group as well as the 18 to 24 years age group
remained relatively constant. However, the actual number of 17 years and under age group and the
18 to 24 years age group experienced increases of 46.5 percent and 35.6 percent respectively. The
age group from 25 through 49 showed a decrease as reflected in the percent of the total population
from 73.7 percent to 71.9 percent, while the age group of 50 years and older showed an increase
from 6.9 percent to 9.1 percent. In each of these categories, there were overall increases
experienced in the actual number of inmates with an increase of 35.6 percent in the age group 25 to
49 and an increase of 81.7 in the 50 years and older age group.

Figures 1-6 and 1-7 display the age distribution of inmates incarcerated in the Arizona Department of
Corrections in 1995 and in 2002. Table 1-20 provides data regarding the average time served for the
DOC inmate population from 1995 through 2002. The data show that the average time served for the
male population has increased from 28 months in 1995 to 37 months in 2002, while the average time
served for the female inmate population has grown from 21 months in 1995 to 25 months in 2002.
The largest percentage increase in time served was with male inmates incarcerated for drug
offenses, which showed a 29.6 percent increase.

Working with juveniles committed to ADJC poses a formidable challenge to staff, because they are
among the most troubled teenagers in Arizona. Many of them have extensive delinquency histories
combined with serious emotional problems. Table 1-23 shows the scope of problems they present to
ADJC staff. Almost all of them have substance abuse (98 percent) or school behavior problems (97
                                                                       31
percent). Practically all of them (94.2 percent) have intellectual deficits. Approximately two-thirds (63
percent) of them come from families with criminal histories.

The average time served by juveniles committed to ADJC has increased. Between 1996 and 2002 the
time served by new commitments in secure care increased by 80 percent from an average of 155.4
days to an average of 279.8 days.

ADJC initiated a parole reinforcement program in 2001. The program was designed for juveniles on
parole that were having trouble complying with their parole conditions. This secure, community-
based program was established to provide intensive assessment services to juveniles who were
having trouble complying with their parole plans. During 2002, 48.4 percent of the juveniles returned
from parole were placed in the parole reinforcement program, 24.9 percent were returned to parole,
25.6 percent were placed on parole revocation status and 1.1 percent were discharged. On average,
juveniles spent 48 days in the parole reinforcement program in 2002, which is considerably less than
the 246.6 days that juveniles spent on parole revocations status, thus saving the department
valuable bedspace.

FIGURE 1-9

The proportion of juveniles released from ADJC sentenced to an Arizona Department of Corrections
(ADC) prison decreased from 23.5 percent in 1996 to 19.8 percent in 1999 (see Figure 1-9). This
achievement is impressive when one considers that the estimated monetary value of saving one high-
risk youth from becoming a career criminal ranges between $1.7 and $2.3 million. [Cohen, Mark. The
Monetary Value of Saving a High Risk Youth, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, 1998.]

RESOURCE ALLOCATION TO STATE CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCIES

Table 1-24 displays the level of funding provided to major state level criminal justice agencies for the
eight years surveyed. These figures represent only General Fund allocations. Many agencies receive
significant levels of funding through sources other than the State General Fund. During the period
from 1995 through 2002 total state appropriations increased by 57.7 percent. The percentage of the
total devoted to criminal justice ranged from 12 percent in 1995 to 13 percent in 2002. The largest
percentage appropriated to criminal justice occurred in 2000 at 15 percent. The change in state
supported General Fund resources varied amongst the various entities.

The entity with the largest percentage increase over the eight-year period was the Department of
Public Safety with a 105.4 percent increase. The only department to show a decrease was the Board
of Executive Clemency with a reduction of 23.3 percent over the same period. Other entities showing
increases included the Department of Corrections (71.5 percent), the Attorney General’s Office (30.0
percent), Department of Juvenile Corrections (82.8 percent) and the Administrative Office of the
Courts (60.1 percent).

The percentage “share” of total appropriations devoted to criminal justice increased the most
between 1995 and 1996. From 1996 through 1999, it remained at 14 percent increasing to 15
percent in 2000 and returning to 14 percent in 2001 before dropping to 13 percent in 2002.

FIGURE 1-10

Figure 1-10 provides a picture of the increase in both the total General Fund and that portion of the
General Fund which is dedicated to criminal justice. Arizona’s General Fund appropriations totaled
$7,034,601,100 in 2002 and 12.9 percent of those funds or $910,054,800 was dedicated to criminal
justice. From 1995 through 2002, the General Fund increased 57.7 percent relative to a 70.6 percent
increase in spending on criminal justice.

Table 1-28 displays the amount of excise taxes collected by each county for jail districts in Arizona.
These districts were created according to A.R.S. § 48-4021 and 4022. This law, created in 1989,
made it possible for County Board of Supervisors to pass a resolution placing a jail district excise tax
on a ballot for voters in that county.

 Total
Data from FY1995 to FY2001 was provided by the Arizona Department of Revenue.

In FY1995, La Paz County created a jail district to raise money for the construction and maintenance
of jails. By FY2001, Coconino, Maricopa, Yavapai, and Yuma counties also used this method of
funding jail construction and maintenance. FY1996 excise taxes for jail districts totaled in $2,966,275
statewide. This number increased to $11,055,446 in FY1998 when Coconino County added the excise
tax and $46,478,526 the next year when Maricopa County took advantage of this statutory provision.
By FY2002, over 116 million was made available to the criminal justice system through the excise
taxes for jails and represents a 1.6 percent increase from FY2001 to FY2002. As not all counties have
created jail districts to collect funds through excise taxes, and those that have do not use the
revenue collected for the same purposes, these funds, and other revenue sources, direct comparison
of county General Fund data is difficult. In order to mitigate this difficulty and allow for limited
comparison of General Fund data, jail excise tax information has been included in the General Fund
tables presented in the 2003 White Paper.

Table 2-11 presents data regarding conviction data for the Apache County Attorney’s Office. No data
was reported for 1995 and 1996. Beginning in 1997, information on attorney’s office convictions was
retrievable and shows an increase in total number of cases submitted for prosecution from 773 in
1997 to 857 in 2002, an increase of 10.9 percent. The total number of cases submitted for
prosecution peaked in 2000 at 1,022. The total cases resulting in conviction remained consistent
during the eight-year period, peaking only slightly in 2000 in alignment with the growth in total
number of cases submitted. The data also shows that the majority of the people were convicted
through plea bargain rather than by trial.

Table 2-45 contains basic data regarding the budget and personnel resources available to the
Coconino County Sheriff’s Office. The table shows that the budget has grown 229 percent from 1995
to 2002 mostly due to the formation of a Jail District which built a new jail that allowed for three
times the inmate population. Personnel numbers were not available for 1995, but from 1996 to 2002
the total number of personnel grew from 128 to 256.5 or an increase in seven years of 100.4
percent. The number of sworn personnel has grown 10.3 percent, while the number of detention
personnel has grown 128.9 percent in the same seven-year period. Note that specific monies were
received in FY2000 that allowed for the expansion of the jail capacity in Coconino County.

Table 2-46 presents selected workload and activity information for the Coconino County Sheriff’s
Office, as provided by the agency. In the process of working to provide the ACJC SAC with the
information requested for the 2003 White Paper the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office found that there
were problems with their computerized case management system. While these issues are being
addressed, it was not possible to correct the problems in time for much of their data to be included in
the 2003 White Paper. Although the number of Part I crimes fluctuated over the eight-year period,
there was a 10.5 percent increase between 2001 and 2002. As noted previously, the maximum jail
capacity for the jail increased from 162 to 350 in 2000 and again in 2001 from 350 to 603.

YUMA COUNTY REPORTED CRIME DATA

Table 2-263 shows data regarding the number of Part I crimes reported by law enforcement agencies
in Yuma County. The following table represents total offenses reported for all of Yuma County.
However, there are notable gaps in the data reported by individual agencies limiting the ability for
comparisons over time. Data from 1995 to 1999 is not UCR data and shows large fluctuations
probably attributed to the lack of data rather than actual changes in crime trends or workloads .
From 2000 to 2002, participation in UCR by Yuma County made the data stable, and therefore,
provides a more accurate representation of the workload information for those years. From 2000 to
2002, total Part I crimes increased from 5,507 in 2000 to 5,705 in 2002, or an increase of 3.6
percent. Over this same period, Violent Offenses increased from 676 in 1995 to 972 in 2002. Much
of this increase can be attributed to a rise in the number of aggravated assaults over this period.
Aggravated assaults rose from 561 in 2000 to 881 in 2002, or an increase of 57 percent.

Over this three-year period, Property Offenses went down slightly (2 percent) in Yuma County, but
burglary (20 percent) and motor vehicle thefts (18.2 percent) experienced increases from 2000 to
2002.
